    ***UPDATE- SONGS ADDED (see below)***

    Hi ladies (and gents)
    I did a few searches and didn't come up with anything remotely similar to this, so here goes...

    I am planning on putting together a "Name that Tune - Mexico" type game for my OOT bags, and maybe to play at the AHR as well, so i am wracking my brain (and googling like crazy) to come up with songs that have "Mexico" in them somewhere. We, and most of our friends, are huge music people, so the plan is to have just the clip with the Mexico part and have people guess the title/artist.
    EDIT: I am thinking of having multiple versions - like a beach/holiday/vacation version, a drinking/booze/bar version, etc. For you other ladies - how bout one for your hometown (best if you are from LA or New York, or maybe Paris!) or other themes...

    Please help me out with any songs you can think of. I know there are also a ton of country songs, but we don't really listen to country, so i haven't included those. But by all means, to help everyone else out, please list them if you know of any!

    Here's what i have so far:
    Chris Isaak - South of the Border
    The Refreshments - Mexico
    Steve Miller Band - Going to Mexico
    Cake - Mexico
    Sara Bareilles - Vegas
    The Killers - Ballad of Michael Valentine
    Queens of the Stone Age - Mexicola
    Johnny Cash - Highwayman
    Rage Against the Machine - Zapata's Blood
    Counting Crows - Holiday in Spain
    Live - Like a Soldier
    Destiny's Child - Nasty Girl
    Elton John - Understanding Women
    Seal - Hey Joe (*couldn't find this version, but it has been done by a TON of people - most popular being Hendrix. Others include Cher, the Offspring, Joe Cocker... probably going to use the Robert Plant version myself)
    Stone Temple Pilots - Atlanta
    Incubus - Mexico
    James Taylor (or Jimmy Buffett) - Mexico
    Beck - Mexico
    Elvis Presley - Mexico
    Concrete Blonde - Mexican Moon
    Billy Joel - Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go Out On Broadway)
    Kenny Chesney - Beer in Mexico
    Toby Keith - Stays in Mexico
    Clay Walker - Mexico
    George Strait - The Seashores of Old Mexico
    ZZ Top - Goin' Down to Mexico
    Willie Nelson/Carlos Santan - They All Went To Mexico
    Tim McGraw - That's Why God Made Mexico
    Garth Brooks - Rodeo or Mexico
    Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby - Hills of Mexico, also - Gulf of Mexico Fishing Boat Blues
    Winger - Short Flight to Mexico
    The Coasters - Short Flight to Mexico
    Electric Six - Germans in Mexico
    Scooter - Raving in Mexico
    Bad Company - Old Mexico
    Butthole Surfers - Mexico
    Dick Dale - Mexico
    Insane Clown Posse - Mexico
    Nazareth - Mexico
    Harry Belafonte - 'Round the Bay of Mexico
    RBD - Mexico, Mexico


    Anyone have anything to add?

          What a cute and clever idea! I love it.

          Mexico by James Taylor is very good!

              Spanish songs would be awesome. Not sure any of my people would know them (Canadians generally speak French if they have a second language!) - but they might be good for someone else here on BDW!

              Gotta add the James Taylor one... though it might have to be Jimmy Buffett's version!

                  That's a lot of'em in that list! All that I could think of (DJ for 18 years) were on your list.

                  2 "related" songs that don't have Mexico in them, but are "tropical" and popular/fun are:

                  Two Pina Coladas (Garth Brooks)
                  5 O'Clock Somewhere (Buffet/Jackson)

                    Well, then it's good to know i got most of them if even a DJ can't come up with more!
